I like this the best of your recordings so far.  I don't know anything about the song, but the tune and your arrangement are very nice and relaxing.

I could listen to this over and over, and in fact I know I will.  Absolutely love this recording, and the combination of the guitar and eviolin.

I have to go along with the rest of the gang.. very very relaxing.

The country sound of the guitar and then the violin sound...very soothing.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful sounds with us.

Nice tune.  I really liked it.
